Unfortunately the display would need to be replaced. I have had to replace many in the past. Fairly simple to do if you have any phones with other problems but a working display. The display is connected by a ribbon cable and is easy to remove and replace.

Also if you have a display that is showing strange symbol/number combination replace the 4 wire line cord with a two wire line cord. For some reason that seems to help.

Why doesn't the LCD display doesn't work?

Does the LCD not work at all? or do you mean that it doesn't display Caller ID information? If the LCD is completely dead, you'll need to get the phone repaired. On the other hand, if it's just the Caller ID that's on the fritz, try this: unplug the base from the power socket; remove any batteries in both the base and the handset; wait one minute; plug the base back into the wall and replace all batteries. This will reset the Caller ID so it works again. (Depending on the phone you may or may not lose settings and memorized numbers.) If this doesn't help, the problem will require a professional repair.

How to open the base

first thing is use a hair drier, If you had a air compressor that may be the best. unplug it take out batteries right away. Place what ever you have over something warm. in the sum just don'nt forget to bring it in. Do not plug it in for 3 days if still sealed like a phone. you must have heat over 110 degrees for water to evaporate. A watch on your had will only dy out if you wear if for a few days. Leave the watch down on dreser for a few days, you will loose it to corossion because a lot of water like a drop in a watch needs heat to evaporate it out of the tiny crakes in electronics. Water will normally short electronics out right away. Only thing I know that survives a lot of water from storms or spills are radios.

Our DECT 6.0 4 phone system has been working fine for well over 1 year. All of the sudden when you dial out and the person on the other end answers they can't hear you. If someone calls here you can hear...

Sit the headset units back to the main base one by one.
Make sure you do all of them at the sametime.
This will reset the DECT 6 security feature.

Swap out the rechargeable battery to rule out weak battery problem.

My Radio Shack Digital Telphone Answering Device TAD-3829 worked well for a little over a year. However a few days ago I discovered that I cannot receive incoming calls anymore; on the callers side there...

These 3829's do that often. After about 1 year or so of use, something fails internally, resulting in the symptom you see. Sometimes you get "Er" on the display, or the machine simply won't pick up and answer the call.
Bottom line - this model's not very good. Ditch it.

No dial tone and when i call my home phone it it doesnt ring.

Turn off your phone and then remove the battery. Press the power on button of your phone without the battery, just hold it for a few seconds. This will drain static electricity on your phone. After that, place the battery back and then power on your phone. See if it works.

Phone 1 battery dies now phone 2 wont work... pls help!!

Sounds like either the battery wasn't fully charged or they're getting old and need new ones to replace.

When new the batteries can take up to 16 Hours to fully charge.
